1996 Volkswagen Jetta 4 Dr GLX VR6 SedanReview

My Vr6 — The Arizona sun KILLS clearcoat, CRACKS rubber and FADES interiors! I love the power in the VR6. The brakes stop in plenty of time. Shifts smooth. Love the leather. A little hard to work on with that VR6 "shoehorned" into the compartment.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love everything about this car.

Cons: The sun has turned my pristine little car into a stunt-double for a Mad-Max sequel!

Fun And Great To Drive, But If You Buy American, Youll Go Faster — acceleration with the manual is pretty nimble, fuel economy and handling is really good. it is german so be prepared to wait for and pay good money for parts when it breaks down. i really like the trunk room and the interior layout is pretty straight forward. road noise is excessive, even with brand new tires.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: manual shift, good sound system, plenty of room, fun sporty car

Cons: repairs are expensive, its a four door,

Use Mainly For First Time Drivers Or If Looking For A Commuter Car. — This is a very nice car for a first time driver. Generally, these are not manual and thus make it an easier transition into driving. Does need regular check-ups due to it's age, however it definitely works for getting me from point A to point B. Very fun to drive and gas doesn't usually cost more than $25 bucks to fill up.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good gas mileage, fun, good acceleration

Cons: Poor build quality, requires somewhat high end maintenance and care.

Love Jettas. — I'm a sucker for Jetta's ask anybody. I do like the way they perform my suggestion is to buy a newer Jetta than what I've purchased in the past and make sure the previous owner treated it as deserved. Owners that have done so tell me they love their Jetta's way more than I. That's saying something.

Pros: Cause I'm selling

Cons: All the problems I already fixed.

The Car I Imagined When I Bought It — i love it cause it's mine and i made it mine in every way possible, from top to bottom. There is very few parts that are original but it drives as though it were made that way. It`s fun to drive and looks great while doing it. I couldnt ask for much more!

Pros: torquey

Cons: always an issue

1996 Jetta Ftw! — I love this car through and through. The only thing missing would be a sunroof, cruise control, and a laser cannon. I don't like that the parts start wearing out around 180k, but hey, nothings perfect right? The gas mileage of this model is right around 38mpg. Yeah, that's right, a 10 year old car is getting better mileage than your new hybrid!

Pros: Excellent gas mileage, room for your friends.

Cons: Made of earthly matierals.  Exists on standard Earth timeline!  Please get maintain as suggested.

Pros: VR6, 4 Doors, Fast

Cons: VW Electrical Systems

Hottest Veedub Guaranteed — the car is, was and always willl be an icon due to stunning looks and amazing perfomance. . .if you want one then you better be able to fork out the money because not only is a VR6 in good condition rare but the 2.8 in-line 6 cylender powerhouse wil dry up your pockets but also leave you with no doubt that this is umong the best volkswagens ever made

Pros: everything

Cons: absolutely nothing

The Jetter — This car will go through anything, especially if you have seen the way my wife drives. 2.0 Jettas aren't to quick on the start but get up pretty well. The Gas mileage on Jetta's is great and overall cost is really normally no big deal the problem is just with ours. Overall maybe a 3

Pros: good looking car, runs forever, will go through anything.

Cons: Leaks all kinds of fluid(just ours) power doors don't work(just ours)

It is the perfect highway car, the smoothness of an American full size, the handling of a European sports sedan, and over 45 mpg on a trip. Read More

I love this car, is very economical and plus it doesn’t have many miles. The only thing I do recommend is to have a lower cost, since it was very used from the inside. Read More
